Note that GH4's interface/gameplay is the same as RB's, but with GH3 note timing.
What the fuck was I on when I wrote that
You start as an emo kid (created by you in the Create-An-Emo mode, with several emo hairstyle selections, and emo band shirts, you can only be male, though). You father has just beaten you, and you start cutting. Then you start to rock, as an escape (with backing tracks). Oh, and your guitar is a white Epiphone Les Paul.

Then your father comes in. "You know, that last song was right. It DID bug your parents". Then he beats you into hospitalization.
When you wake up, you're at the hospital, and you learn that your dad's been put in jail. The doctors ask for their money, but you have none, and the government sure as *bleep* ain't gonna pay for it. You decide to pay the doctors with rock (with backing tracks).

Oh, and you've unlocked the STORES. You can get new, non-emo clothing, new, non-emo hairstyles, YOU CAN EVEN GET A SEX CHANGE.
When you get there, there's a female bassist, and the male lead singer. They say, "DAVE GROHL? WHAT'RE YOU DOIN' HERE?!?!" "My friend and I would like to form a band with you." "... you're hired. Let's see how well we play together, though."
